What is G2i?

G2i is a hiring platform for engineers by engineers. Our vision is for the hiring process to be simple, trustworthy and enjoyable for both companies and engineers. Our mission is to create a vetting process where:

  • Engineers will vet other engineers
  • Engineer vetting will be as close to on-the-job requirements as possible
  • The vetting process will be objective, repeatable and quantitatively scored
  • The process will be transparent. We will provide the engineer's code, our code review and technical interview notes in full to our clients.
G2i is short for "Good News to the Internet." In addition to being good news to engineers in the tech industry, we are on mission to help hundreds of street kids in Nairobi, Kenya obtain education, a safe home, parental care, and the love they need. We are also committed to supporting the open source community by finding ways to financially support those who build the OSS we rely on. G2i is looking for a creative and results-oriented professional to join the company and head its marketing efforts. G2i is one of the leading talent marketplaces for developers and companies focused on React, React Native, and Node.js – the most important technologies for mobile and web apps. We embrace and enable remote work. You can work from anywhere. Our team is based throughout the United States and the world, including South America, Europe and Africa.

Feel free to watch this 6 minute video from our founder about the mission of G2i.

What We're building

In order to fulfill our mission & vision we are building a two-sided marketplace that will allow companies to find pre-vetted engineers that can augment their teams on demand. We're investing in features such as a quantitative manual review code process, individualized company match scores and machine learning to automate more of these processes. 

Job Description

We're looking for a person to join our diverse, remote-friendly, global team as VP of Product. The role has the ability to define product at G2i, taking the reigns as the VP of Product and working in partnership with the CTO. You'll be responsible for the product vision, working closely with and reporting to the CEO to bring the G2i vision to new heights.
